Trying to eat more meatless meals is usually not too hard with all the meat substitute products they have out now.  My family really likes beans too so I’m fortunate.  It was rainy and cold all week here so I decided to make a nice crock-pot stew but wanted to do something a little different. Alot of my soups and stews have tomatoes and I have a son who eats most anything – except tomatoes.  So I decided on white beans and spinach but wasn’t sure what else I was going to add to this stew until I started pulling it together.  Luckily the results were delicious.  Amazingly enough, the broth tasted even better the next day. Enjoy!

2 Cans Northern White Beans, Rinsed and Drained

1 32 Ounce Carton Emeril’s Vegetable Stock
1 Cup Fresh Spinach Torn (or Use Baby Spinach)
2 Tablespoons Hot Mustard
Garlic Powder
Black Pepper

  2. Stir well.
  3. Cook on low 4–6 hours until potatoes are cooked through.
  4. Add spinach in last half hour of cooking.

Notes

The vegetarian sausage doesn’t take long to cook so don’t worry about not cooking it enough. Also, I used Great Northern beans but you could use any white beans you wish. I just found that the Northern beans have more fiber than my old standby, cannellini beans.
